Let’s get real…

2 Comments

This entry is inspired by a radio talk show that is driving me bazonkers!! And dangit, my radio can’t get any other station.

So I’m sick and tired of pretending…pretending to be what society wants me to be…nah, that’s not right either. Society- well some of it, is okay with me. I’m sick of what others think of me. okay, that might work! 😛

So who am I?
I’m a disabled Veteran, a Wiccan, a smartass and a nice person! That’s it in a nutshell. But what gets me in issues is that I’m a Wiccan. OMG! So my spiritual path is different than yours (maybe) but that doesn’t make me wrong or evil. There are many paths to the divine, I don’t bash yours, don’t attempt to burn me! I’m a smartass, and speak sarcasm fluently-see above- it’s a defense coping mechanism. Oh yeah, I’m a therapist too. lol
I like to think I’m a fairly smart person as well, my life experiences and education are probably different than yours. It doesn’t make it wrong, diversity is necessary for life. If we were all the same, it would be freaking boring and annoying.
I’m a geek, nerd, dork what ever label you want to give me, I wear ’em all proudly! I dress up for Con’s, it’s fun!! And I don’t stand out like the newbies. I still read comics, watch cartoons and gush over the latest geek news. And yes, I’m a Woman!! 😀

The main thing I’m trying to get across here, stop believing the stereotypes!!
I really am a nice person, once you get to know me. And that’s the thing, people hear I’m a Witch and automatically they want nothing to do with me. That’s sad! 😦 You could be missing out on a wonderful friendship. But you’ll never know.

okay, I think I got it out… now then have an Awesome Monday!!
the other impetus for this entry, Pagan Pride day is right around the corner, and I already see the people that don’t want us to have a nice day! And I’ve started wearing my pentacle and the Goddess on the Moon jewelry. I have to keep it hidden underneath my shirt. For fear I might scare the normies! (said in humor-see Monster High) le sighs…
And omg, I certainly can’t discuss why I’m getting so excited!! And wish me luck getting the next few Wiccan Holiday’s off, I only ask for three: Samhain, Yule and Midsummer. These three have the most personal significance for me. I celebrate all the holidays on the wheel. )O( Blessed BE! Embrace Tolerance and Diversity!!

My jewelry, and I have the earrings to match the Goddess on the Moon, and yes, I am wearing them. LOL 😀

Namibia Day 2013
August 26, 2013 in Namibia

Namibia Day takes place on August 26, 2013. Namibia Day or Heroes’ Day is a national public holiday in Namibia. It is recognized by the United Nations as Namibia Day. The day commemorates the Namibian War of Independence which began on 26 August 1966 at Omugulugwombashe. National celebrations take place annually at different places, usually in the north of Namibia near important battle zones. Hundreds of people annually gather to watch leaders such as Hifikepunye Pohamba, Sam Nujoma and Nahas Angula officially commemorate veterans of the People’s Liberation Army of Namibia, SWAPO’s military wing during the War. Likewise, honours, such as military medals, are handed out on the day. Heroes’ Acre, a war memorial outside of Windhoek, was opened on Heroes’ Day in 2002. It is also the same day that the United Nations Institute for Namibia, a tertiary educational body in Zambia under the auspices of the United Nations and forerunner to the University of Namibia, was inaugurated in 1976.

Dog Day
August 26, 2013

No one can win hearts like man’s best friend and in honour of this bond between man and canine, Dog Day is celebrated.

Take time to appreciate the love and value that dogs bring to our daily lives, and to do your bit for homeless and abused dogs the world over. From keeping us safe working for the emergency services to supporting people who are blind, deaf or disabled, dogs do a lot for us humans, and this is an opportunity to give something back.

Recommendations for ways to celebrate Dog Day range from adopting a dog from a rescue home to giving your dog a holistic spa treatment or even buying yourself and your dog matching t-shirts.

The National Dog Day Foundation supports all breeds and varieties of dogs and discourages purchasing from unethical backyard breeders and puppy mills; instead, support reputable breeders or adopt from rescue homes.

Dog Day has been supported by such high profile individuals as former US President George W Bush whose own dog, Barney the Scottish terrier has his own website and has even starred in a series of short films. So celebrate dogs and their varied talents today, both by taking the time to treat the dogs in your own life and by supporting dogs in need.

Women’s Equality Day
August 26, 2013 in the USA

Women in the United States were given the right to vote on August 26, 1920 when the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution was signed. The amendment was first introduced many years earlier in 1878. Every president has published a proclamation for Women’s Equality Day since 1971 when legislation was first introduced in Congress by Bella Abzug. This resolution was passed designating August 26 of each year as Women’s Equality Day.

Women’s rights are the rights and entitlements claimed for women and girls of many societies worldwide. In some places these rights are institutionalized or supported by law, local custom, and behaviour, whereas in others they may be ignored or suppressed. They differ from broader notions of human rights through claims of an inherent historical and traditional bias against the exercise of rights by women and girls in favour of men and boys.

Issues commonly associated with notions of women’s rights include, though are not limited to, the right: to bodily integrity and autonomy; to vote (suffrage); to hold public office; to work; to fair wages or equal pay; to own property; to education; to serve in the military or be conscripted; to enter into legal contracts; and to have marital or parental rights.
